With a small glitch (I'm not sure what causes it) I can get a better syllable count using the SOUL package.

comment Does writing to a property list take longer than writing to a token list?
@BrunoLeFloch could you expand on your first comment a little. I've left the question open to give you a chance to answer. I'm confused about (1) why a second pass is required or (2) why increasing the length of values causes the scan for duplicate keys to take that much longer. I'm guessing that the compiler needs to check every token to see whether it is the start of a key delimiter, including tokens contained in values?

comment Does writing to a property list take longer than writing to a token list?
As a follow up, in a simple write/retrieve situation like this (where duplicate "keys" don't exist and don't get changed) writing pairs sequentially to a token list/sequence and then parsing afterwards to recover items would eliminate the parse on write aspect and, depending on implementation, possibly be more efficient? Are there any specific gains associated with retrieval from a property list as opposed to a sequence/token list?

Thanks Joseph, that makes perfect sense.
